My 2000 NB has had pronounced lighter stripes in the paint for about 2 years. They are two and run front to back over the hood, roof then down the trunk. It looks like my bug had a bad day in the spray booth down Mexico way. Anyone else seen this?

I have heard many a story about Cyber Green paint fading. Even know of one person who finally got VW to agree to a complete respray as a result.

When I bought mine new in 2000, I did notice subtle differences in the shading from metal to plastic, but soon found out that was normal.

I haven't had any issue of paint fading, but I do keep it in the garage, which helps quite a bit.

My 2000 CyberGreen GLX is also faded in a stripe like pattern. I think it was parked under flourescent lights in a garage. The stripe is not real noticeable but I can see it....
